Well, it's time to let the cat out of the bag about all the lack of detail lately... lol. There are still blurred sections in this week's Project Life layout, but that's just to keep names and personal information private. The rest... well... like I said. Big changes coming!
So. Six weeks ago, I was driving to work in the morning, thinking about how great my job was, how excited I was about what I was working on, how cool the people were, and how I could see myself there for a long time. And about 2pm that same day, the CEO called me into his office to let me know that a recent company acquisition (and another bid for venture capital... unsaid, but let's not kid ourselves) had made mine and a few other positions obsolete. Well that sucked. But whatever. No sense crying over spilled milk, right? I was applying for jobs that very afternoon and had my first interview booked the next day. I knew it was a risk going to a start-up, and I don't regret it for a minute. It was a great experience, and I can honestly say that without it, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to go where I'm going next. And next is exciting :)
At this point, you're probably putting 2 and 2 together and thinking of those pictures I posted from a trip to Connecticut last week. And you'd be right! Actually, last week I was in Connecticut and North Carolina. And that leads me to...
Everything I used this week is from Design House Digital, and most is from Gennifer Bursett. A few iPhone photos from the week and a LOT to say, of course! It was a very fast, exhausting, and pretty much awesome week.
I decided to dedicate an entire page to a small sample of my "ephemera" from the trip and what followed. Ticket stubs, business cards from people I interviewed with, the interview schedule for my visit in North Carolina, and a copy of the offer letter I received for my new job in Connecticut. I kid you not... the time from my first interview to the offer letter was exactly a week. I give credit to a great recruiter, but also to things that seem meant to be just falling into place. And I can't wait. So... the next few weeks are going to be CRAZY. I've already booked another trip out to find a place to live... I have appointments to view housing, appointments for moving companies to come give me quotes... and I've been doing a ton of cleaning and organizing to get ready to pack everything up - probably sometime late next week. I'm sure the time is going to go zipping by, but I think I'll make it. As long as I can get the movers lined up and find a place to send them, the rest should fall into place. And then, it's the start of another adventure! I'm looking forward to getting to know the area and meeting new people. But first, gotta do the hard stuff. So if I'm not posting a lot over the next few weeks, you know where I am :)
